Others say that there are better snowboarding games out there, but I think they mean more expensive one, because this one rocks! So many updates for a game that was already great on day 1!

Upcoming Games: CJS2, Racing Apex, High Strangeness, Dino Run, Super Feed Me, Mimeo and the Kleptopus King, Loot, Run Run Dash, Pogo Rampage, Burrito Bison, Star Saver, Pocket Cars, Rock Rider, THEM, Prince of Europa, Epic Dive, One Tap Hero

I noticed a few comments in iTunes about the scoring in free modes not working. The update we are working on now will include 4 new Plus+ scoreboards for the free modes (that's why the free mode scoring has changed - your mode score is determined by the best scoring jump you do for that round).

Other cool news, I just checked the US store and Crazy Snowboard is currently the top ranked snowboarding game in the App Store!



Thanks everyone for all your help and support!!

And if you still haven't got a copy yet, make sure you check out the brand new lite version (Crazy Snowboard Lite v2.6.1) update which includes the all-new in-air spin, flip and grab controls.

If you have any suggestions, please add a comment in this forum or send us your feedback at http://iphone.ezone.com
